9780882959634: Southern Women: Black and White in the Old South

Unlike their Northern counterparts, Southern women lived in relative obscurity, giving rise to, and often making them victims of, myth and exaggeration. In Southern Women, Professor McMillen considers diaries, letters, and other personal accounts as well as the latest scholarly research to present an alternate view into the lives of antebellum Southern women, helping to dispel myths about how these women lived.

This intriguing narrative assesses similarites and differences among the various classes of Southern women, as well as interracial and class relationships. A wholly new chapter on Southern women and the Confederacy--including rare scholarship on yeoman and poor farmwives--and photographic essay help make the second edition of this versatile text ideal as supplementary reading in the U.S. History survey as well as in courses on Southern, Social, and Women's, and African American History.

Book Description HARLAN DAVIDSON INC, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. McMillen summarises the latest thinking about the lives of women in the South, both white and black, elite and ordinary. One of the best features of the book is the author s ability to weave the lives of all these women together in the same chapters. The excellent introduction is followed by four chapters on Family Life and Marriage, Reproduction and Childrearing, Social Concerns: Education and Religion, and Women at Work. McMillen points out that many myths still surround antebellum Southern women. They were much more complicated people than the women portrayed in many novels and histories. Of course, they cannot be lumped into one group as they differed according to time, region, race, and class, but all were influenced by living in a rural, agricultural, slave society. In this society women were supposed to be submissive and hardworking and devoted to the family and home; each person had a place and women were supposed to know theirs.
